Oakley Frogskins -
Oakley Frog Skins Sunglass - Men's In American history, it was a decade like no other -- Reagan ran the White House, "Back To The Future" was a box office sensation and hip-hop had just hit the scene. It was also the time when Oakley created an exclusive pair of sunglasses -- the Frog Skin. They resurrected the original silhouette from the ’80s and remixed it with modern style, giving you a chance to own a piece of history -- the Oakley Frog Skin Sunglasses.

Resurrected from the vault, the Oakley Frogskin Sunglasses are back with a thing or two to say about classic style and unparalleled performance. Cut from that same retro mold, these shades have been upgraded with premium materials to guarantee ultimate functionality. O Matter frames make them tough and durable so they can keep up with everything you put them through. Double lens technology seals out the naughty sunrays, but still give you perfect clarity and the ability to detect minor changes in the terrain. Back to do battle with bright conditions, the Oakley Frogskin Sunglasses will not be denied victory.

Born in the 80’s and back to rule the world once again, the Oakley Frogskins Sunglasses have a limited edition run of colors and design, so get ‘em while you still can. The frame is legendary and is paired with Oakley's best optics; the Frogskins know what’s up when it comes to eyewear.


The Oakley Frogskin Sunglasses are freakin classics that require a little something extra to pull off. In pop culture, it was a time like no other. Ronald Reagan was in the White House, "The Terminator" was killing at the box office and Run-D.M.C. was in certified gold. It was also the time when Oakley created one-of-a-kind sunglasses called FROGSKINS. Oakley has resurrected the original tooling from the early '80s giving you a chance to own a piece of history.


Way back in the '80s when pink spandex was king, people scrambled to find a pair of Oakley Frogskin Sunglasses. And whether you choose to go for the Shaun White sigs or for a polished pro, the Frogskins will block those harmful UV rays as you stroll down the street with a ghetto-blaster on your shoulder.

It was the turbulent '80s. Reagan was in the White House and a New Wave sound swept across the nation. It was also the time when Oakley created thes one-of-a-kind sunglasses called the FROGSKIN®.
Oakley resurrected the original tooling from the early '80s to produce new limited editions, offering you a chance to own a piece of history.
For each original color combination of this coveted style, only 3000 Collectors Editions will be produced. This is an opportunity to own a rare retro classic, and once supplies are gone, the window of opportunity will be closed forever.

Positive Reviews:

I love Frogskins - they were my first pair of Oakleys back when they came out and I couldn't imagine paying $50 for a pair. Now, at $100+, I still can't. But - I did. After my first pair was stolen from my car years ago, I got caught in the nostalgia of the re-release and bought a pair again.
I have a smaller face, and don't remember them fitting so wide across the eyes. Maybe I'm just used to the square wires and smaller pieces... but the lightweight frame is still the same - if not lighter.
I agree that now, after being an adult and feeling metals in sunglasses like titanium and magnesium, or the Oakley X metal (whatever that is...)... the Frogskins feel cheap. Still - as a grab and go pair of specs, they're good and easy on the eyes.
Just wish Oakley would put back out the bright yellow/purple irridium lens combo that was stolen... I loved those...

After writing my last review, I have already trashed these and lost them in a matter of less than a year. I am only giving these 4 stars now because these are incomparable to most Oakley sunglasses that I own. I say this because the design of the sunglass lets in a ton of light on the sides and I get eye strain easily. Yeah that might sound lame but try wearing these for 8 hours in the sun when actually trying to do something more than sitting on a curb. If you're looking for a performance sunglass don't get these but if you want to bring back your childhood (like I'm desperately trying) then score a pair of these.

First pair of nice sunglasses I ever purchased were some Oakley sport type glasses. Then bought a pair of O's for boarding. Saw these guys and had to get them. Love Oakleys. I have to agree that they do feel slightly cheap, but I bought them for the look and the shape. Not many types of glasses look good on my face, but I get lots of compliments on these. Would like the price better if they were polarized lenses, but I had some extra Christmas money, so I bit the bullet and bought em anyway.

William Adjemian at Backcountry.com on 01/13/2014

I can't say much about these that hasn't already been said. The retro cool factor is there, the Oakley lens quality is there, but I can't really say they seem like a hundred-dollar pair of sunglasses. I'd still recommend them if the price doesn't bother you. They're very comfortable and, well, just plain cool. One thing I can add: I have the Polished Rootbeer version, and the frames seem considerably darker in person than they look on the website. Not sure if that applies to all of them, but there ya go.

Adam Johnson at Backcountry.com on 05/03/2013

In my eye's the frogskin is just a toned down version of the Holbrook. I have both Holbrook's and Frogskin's and I used the Holbrooks for more of a classy yet casual look and the frogskins are my "active" shades. I wore these mountain biking all summer and definitely put some abuse on them, and haven't had any problems.
Overall, if you are on a budget, these are a great shade. If you want something that looks and feels a little higher end, go with the Holbrook.

Brian Mehregan at Backcountry.com on 09/24/2013
AWESOMEEE! Not only are these genuine Oakleys but they actually glow in the dark. They are supposed to but I had thought that they wouldn’t really glow and you would have to charge them for hours. Nope, charge them under a light for about 15 second and the glow vibrantly! SO AWESOME They are so sweet I have gotten so many compliments on them and I have only had them for a month. I love Oakley.

So I got my brother a pair of the polarized matte black for his birthday, and after I saw how awesome these actually are, I bought myself 2 versions of the standard lens. The colors are vivid, my favorite pair is the white with ruby red. These work fantastic outdoors on sunny California days. I wear them on the golf course and the red lens helps with clarity against the grass. Thumbs up!

These glasses are fantastic. But there is one drawback. Usually with sunglasses or even just normal glasses there are little rubber things that stick to the bridge of your nose. Not with these. And if you are like me, when you bend over you will drop them occasionally. But if you don't mind the occasional scratch, then I would totally recommend these glasses.

Michael Denman at Backcountry.com on 11/21/2013
Bringing it back! I didn't exactly expect Zappos.com to stock these, but they did with a healthy stock of them! These are limited reissues of the vintage OG models from the 80's that I was constantly looking for on Ebay. I got them fresh and brand new, couldn't ask for more. Excellent service by Zappos.com getting it to me.

If the price isn't too much of a deterrent, it's hard to go wrong with these. They feature a classic design that makes for a great pair of shades to wear around town in style. Being used to metal aviator frames, I was particularly impressed by how light they are. I got them in polished black/grey.

Negative Reviews:

I really wanted to like these - 80s throwback, made in the USA, great look - but the arms just kept popping off at very inopportune times - actually like all the time. They also stretched out so never really stayed on my face well - but when they did, they looked great. If you are only going to wear these in your car (i.e., leave them there) then go for it, but otherwise I would pass. Sent mine back.

Aaron Ostrovsky at Backcountry.com on 09/01/2013

Nice looking glasses but the construction is not well made. Like some of the other reviews state, the ball construction is a nice idea as opposed to breaking but how many other pairs of glasses have the arms come off all the time anyway?

Maggie at Backcountry.com on 04/28/2013

They feel cheap.

Neutral Reviews:

I got a pair of these in the non polarized and polarized versions. I thought I would try them out for casual sunglasses and compare them to my Revo's. In the end I think they are cool and stylish, but the lens quality in both the pol and nonpol versions is horrendous. If you are looking to look cool then this is your glasses, but put on a pair of Revo and or Maui Jim's right after these and you will then know what I am talking about. You can't beat a crystalline lens with a plastic lens. Aside from that they are light and you can put pretty much any lens in them you want.

Johnathan Rambo at Backcountry.com on 09/25/2013

i returned these for aesthetic reasons. while the green lenses and smoke frames were cool, the shape of the frames just didn't appeal once i had them on.
i agree w/ the many reviews previous noting these glasses feel cheap in hand. with eyes closed i'd be hard pressed, i bet, to pick them out of a much lower cost crowd. i don't think the lenses are polarized, either. so, if i'm going to drop a bill or more on some casual shades, they better look really sick and i just didn't feel that way about these.
close, but no cigar.
